KUNQ is an American artist collective comprised of MICAH (Micah Domingo), Rizzla (Brian Friedberg), Battyjack (D’hana Perry), False Witness (Marco Gomez), STUD1NT (Izzy Barreiro Ocampo), SHYBØI (Yulan Grant), KILBOURNE (Ashe Kilbourne) and FXWRK (Coral Foxworth). Originally formed in Boston, Massachusetts, the current roster of artists now exists in Brooklyn and New Orleans. The KUNQ ethos is centered around the production of multidimensional work through sound, visual and performance art while expanding the discourse surrounding the subcultures and genres that have become diluted or obscured in the name of hybridity. Together, they operate under a mutual understanding, respect and adherence to boundaries set by each artist, in accordance with their various intersections, identities, and practice. KUNQ artists have performed, taught, and debuted original work throughout the United States and internationally at such institutions and events as MoMA PS1, The Brooklyn Museum, The Institute of Contemporary Art in Boston, The Charles Hayden Planetarium at the Museum of Science, The Massachusetts Institute of Technology, the 2013 Venice Biennale, and the 2014 Frieze Art Fair in London.
